"It is not easy to catch the pervading spirit of a thousand soldiers who are manhandling heavy equipment, building bridges, sawing logs, picking up mail, keeping records, and waiting - although they don't know it - for the fury of the Ardennes counteroffensive, which will shatter the order of their routine into a million fragments, each a sharp particle that prods men into unanticipated patterns of behavior. But Janice Holt Giles has done so. Her descriptions of the 291st unit-family, of the Malmedy massacre and its effect on the Americans, of the German attack shifting into high gear, and, above all, of what happens to men in battle are among the best ever written. The 291st Engineer Combat Battalion was one of many units - infantry, artillery, armor, signal, quartermaster, medical, and the rest - which found themselves swept up into the maelstrom of the German Ardennes World War II counteroffensive. By virtue of their steadfastness and fortitude , they destroyed the German hope of victory. THE DAMNED ENGINEERS shows how they did it, and why. " .24 pages of b/w photos in two 12-page sections.
